This was a fun and surprising story. It took a while to realize what was really going on in the story and each new chapter threw in a new twist. I kept expecting the story to end in with him waking up from a bad dream. But the characters and actions keep getting stranger and more entertaining as the story went along.
I really liked the wonderful mixture of characters. They had special personalities that were well presented so they almost seemed possible.

There is no reason for me to try another. I like a good story that is funny but it needs to have some redeeming quality. I didn't find it here.

Lincoln's mother typifies the 'old people' who young people (the author?) think are so out of touch that they are not needed in the life of a family.
I do not know much about the specific battles and events leading up to the assassination of Lincoln. This is an interesting presentation of history.
I would read reviews before spending money on another Bill O'Reilly book. He says that the book is written in a entertaining style. I would not give it that much entertainment value.
The performance was dry. Bill described the men on horseback as
